Duo.EXE is a powerful extraterrestrial NetNavi that MegaMan.EXE encounters in the fourth Battle Network game. Duo observes the inhabitants of planets and judges whether they are good or evil overall, destroying them if they are the latter.The machinations of Dr. Regal led him to judge humanity as evil and thus tried to destroy the planet. MegaMan.EXE later confronts Duo after defeating his inner darkness, defeating him after a grueling battle and causing Duo to have a change of heart and allowed Mega Man access to the controls of the comet set to destroy Earth as a final test. Although the young NetNavi was too weak to do it alone, the combined sentiment of all of his friends and the people of Earth allowed him to take the reins and avert Earth's destruction. In the anime Duo's role is similar, but the NetNavi is vastly more powerful, easily defeating MegaMan.EXE and co. before destroying the Earth after Regal once again made Duo doubt the worth of humanity's existence. Only Baryl's sacrifice and the trust required to perform Cross Fusion made him change his mind and revert the damage.
